Good choice on the skimmer. So far I've had mine over a year now and I love it. I have mine hanging on my sump.

I would say the water level is about an inch and a half above the top of the intake cup...

The little white plug on your air tube is not permanent and really isn't needed at all... Take it out of the tubing and put the black exhaust piece directly onto the tubing.

It's a very easy skimmer to set up... I'll get a couple better pics tomorrow, there's 1 or 2 tweaks to help with operation and reduce micro-bubbles in the tank. I would do it now, but I have a 63 lb bulldog holding me hostage because he's sleeping...
